Popular opinion says that once you reach a certain age, your life might as well be over. After all, what do old people have to contribute to society? They don't work. They don't produce children anymore. What do they do? That's precisely the sort of logic that allows society to forget an elderly couple, leaving them all on their own in a tiny rented room. Even though they may once have been mothers and fathers, friends and family, they're now abandoned. It's not too pretty, we have to say.
In their old age, this couple focuses mostly on the moment. They no longer have dreams or hopes of the future.
The couple may be old, but their actions are so ordinary that we can't help but relate to them.
